Uwe Lück submitted an update to the commado package. Version number: r0.11a License type: lppl1.3 Summary description: Expandable iteration on comma-separated and filename lists Announcement text:
No code change, but there was an awful mistake in describing the relation to the `dowith' bundle that I noticed when Benno Pütz asked me after a talk (thanks!). I have added an "essay" about "theory and practice" or the role of those macros (some mainly programming tools and simple enough for a talk).
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/generic/commado More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/commado We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/usergroups.html .
Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Manfred Lotz

commado – Expandable iteration on comma-separated and filename lists

The bundle provides two packages: commado and filesdo.

The package commado provides the command \DoWithCSL:

\DoWithCSL{<cmd>}{<list>} applies an existing one-parameter macro <cmd> to each item in a list <list> in which terms are separated by commas.

The package filesdo provides the command \DoWithBasesExts:


which runs the single parameter command <cmd> on each file whose base and extension are respectively from the comma-separated lists <bases> and <exts>.

These ‘loop’-like commands are (themselves) entirely expandable.

The packages rely on packages plainpkg, and stacklet
